i dont know the length of yj springs but i believe they are a lil longer and they are wider. i guess if they are the same length you could use washers or something to make up the difference in width on the cj springs at the shackle and springeye. you would have a gap between your spring and the ubolts at the springplate that would scare me a lil.

ok, now why would you want to? cj springs dont flex as well and arent as stable as yj springs.

The front YJ are 2 1/2" wide, CJ front are 2". The front YJ are 1 inch longer, so I was told. I don't know about the rear YJ. The CJ's rear are 2 1/2" wide.

I am going to use the YJ springs on the front of my CJ due to better ride.

Hope this helps

Thanks for the info boys... the reason i was interested was that my Yj has a broken eye on the right rear. This is a jeep that i take hunting ect... So i was looking for a low cost replacement... but i found a leaf from a 88yj for $10, just down the road from me... thanks

Did you buy the SOA springs with 5 or 6 leafs? I been looking at he Rubicon brand because they claim their springs for SOA are better ride. I called them to ask some question how they were built and shaped but not much help. I wanted a drawing on their springs with all the measurements. I hope they didn't think I was a spy for another company.

I would like to see some pictures before I buy. I am working on my front axles, Dana 44 cutting them down and going to do a SOA. I am waiting for 2 1/2 steel tubing for making spring perchs.
next I will be rebuilting the Dana 300.

Wii you send me any spring pictures before ia buy?
